Subtitled - A Bizarre Collection of Antiques & Curios. This is an incredible collection of rarities from one of the UK's best-kept secrets. Featuring B-sides & other non-album tracks. This 20-track compilation of the very best that the 'Hitch' has to offer. Chrome Dreams. 2004.
Worth it for the Furs cover alone.

"Okay, a lot of this has been released elsewhere and some might find the price tag unjustified. However, this is worth it if for no other reason than the weird postmodern refraction (or something like that) of Robyn covering fellow '80s college rock casualties of the great alternative sellout of the 1990s, The Psychedelic Furs. "The Ghost in You" gains something in his sparse folk arrangement that it didn't have in its synth heavy/Richard Butler's limited vocal range but still great original version.
Get it before it goes out of print like every other Hitchcock release.
Nice unofficial comp

"This is a bootleg and quite a number of the tracks have since been released as bonus tracks on the Rhino issues. But there's still a few choice nuggets that will delight the Hitchcock fan that one would be hard pressed to find anywhere else."
